    While Thought Forms impress, it is Esben And The Witch who in two tracks, in 15 brief minutes, absolutely stun.

    While Esben may be the more established of the two bands here, the more critically massaged and beard-strokingly analysed, it’s Thought Forms that provide a sense of gameness, of openness and of actual fun that offers a welcome balance to Esben’s pummeling, near-savage emotional and musical beatings.

    That this split LP showcases is two bands from different cities, on different labels and of a largely different generation of musicians--yet it's unified and generally very good throughout.
  4. Thought Forms' side peaks with the driving Sonic Youth riffs of ‘Sound Of Violence’ and the dizzying My Bloody Valentine lurch of ‘For The Moving Stars’.... Having left their label, [Esben And The Witch] are using crowdfunding to record their next album with Steve Albini, for which these raw tracks offer great.

    Rozz Williams is dead, but goth's not dead!!!! This is a good album for any lover of indie/alternative music with goth undercurrents. ItRozz Williams is dead, but goth's not dead!!!! This is a good album for any lover of indie/alternative music with goth undercurrents. It clocks in at 32 minutes. Not bad for an EP on iTunes for only 5.60!!! Good stuff & Recommended! Expand
